Sandford St Martin’s Primary School

Welcome to our school website.  We see this as a window into our school that allows parents and visitors to gather a real flavour of our ethos, our environment, the wonderful characters who we have the privilege of supporting and the kaleidoscope of activity that makes up the tapestry of our school life.

At the heart of everything we do are the children.  The seven years they spend in our school is an extremely precious time and we seek to make every opportunity a learning experience and squeeze the value out of every day.  You will see from much of the content of this website how central the children are and what fantastic ambassadors they are for the younger generation.

Although learning is our core purpose, so is laughter, friendship, challenge, exploration and collaboration.  Please enjoy looking around the website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Annette Faithfull, Interim Headteacher

We have a wonderful community of learners and we are inspired by the world around us.
